How many of you consider joining a course of personal development or self-help? Or let’s leave it. How many of you do want to actually see a better-improved version of yourself? We guess there are plenty of hands raised. But what are you doing about it? Simply thinking that I wish to transform, or ‘tomorrow’ will be the day when I change isn’t going to help. You ought to invest in your personal development if you wish for a change.
There are plenty of books, online courses available through which you can get a good idea about how to improve yourself. However, if you are not much of a reading person then there are a lot of seminars conducted by motivational speakers for you to guide you on a path of self-transformation.
Here are top 5 reasons which we believe may answer your question.
If you have ever been to one of these self-help seminars you would find that there is always a positive aura around you. People may be talking about the issues they face in life however; this also serves as a sort of learning and inspiration for the audiences who are present therein. It wouldn’t be wrong if we say if you go to such seminar once you will start going again and again.
You may be surprised to find some of the most affluent personalities are attending such personal development or self-help seminars. Such events provide you a common ground to meet people with the same mentality and thinking as you. You begin to develop your social circle, while at the same time get into connection with people from your industry that through their actions and experiences can guide you and motivate you to not settle for less. Here you will be able to develop great networks which may eventually lead to your businesses success.
We would prefer you attending a webinar of affluent personalities such as Richard Branson, instead of reading a book they have written. In such sessions, these motivational speakers dive in deep with regards to the concept of which they have written the book. It helps you more easily understand the purpose behind every book these writers write and most importantly it helps you understand that the writer of such awesome book is also a human being. The best part of such sessions is that they do not generally have one speaker, instead, there are a group of other influencers as well, standing there to impart you some extra knowledge.
A session with live questions, discussions are a much more powerful motivator than you reading about such sessions or stories in a book. Seeing the person next to you ask a question or describing how making few amends in his life, was he able to change his life, will motivate you to a next level. You begin thinking if it worked for him; it is going to work for me. These sessions provide you with a live example of how changing the way you see yourself and your life can you achieve a better and modified version of yourself.
After reading a book you may feel a need for a change however after a while you probably will forget most of the lessons which the book taught you. However, attending a live session leaves a deep impact on your brain and it probably is an image which will be quite hard to erase. You will be able to relate to lessons remembering the person who asked a question about it in the seminar. This way the information you gathered is probably going to last with you for a lifetime.
